Vivek Oberoi Has THIS To Say To Kamal Haasan Over His Controversial Comment

Darpan News Desk IANS, 13 May, 2019
  • Vivek Oberoi Has THIS To Say To Kamal Haasan Over His Controversial Comment

Actor Vivek Anand Oberoi on Monday slammed Kamal Haasan over his "first terrorist was Hindu" remark, saying the actor-politician should not divide the country.


While campaigning for his party Makkal Needhi Maiam's candidate for the May 19 Assembly by-election in Aravakuruchi in Karur district on Sunday, Haasan said: "The first terrorist of an independent India was a Hindu - Nathuram Godse."


It was Godse who shot dead Mahatma Gandhi on January 30, 1948 in New Delhi.


Referring to Gandhi's killing, Haasan added: "I am here to question that killing."


Haasan's comment did not go down well with a section of netizens, including several politicians.


Vivek, who is a vocal supporter of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was also not impressed.


In a Twitter post to the senior actor, Vivek wrote: "Dear Kamal sir, you are a great artiste. Just like art has no religion, terror has no religion either! You can say Godse was a terrorist, why would you specify ‘Hindu'? Is it because you were in a Muslim dominated area looking for votes?


"Please sir, from a much smaller artiste to a great one, let's not divide this country, we are one. Jai Hind."
